    Hi there abhishek_rane

    OK here's what to do, after you import your file, in flash, each frame is to be broke apart (Ctrl+b) then hold each seperate art work, and go to modify>Optimize shape, also you'll find that loads of the shapes can be out of viewing area, deltet them also, and lines, there will be loads of un-needed lines, delete'em too, now this is a very time consuming process depending on the number of frames you have, but don't be tempted in optimizing the whole frame, it'll ruin everything.

    also when a part is not moving for some frames-a back ground maybe- cut it then paste in place in a new layer, and make it normal frames(F5) till it changes, then delete the extra frames where the same object appears, that'll reduce the file size a lot, as objects won't be drawn in each frame.

    these combined tips will reduce your file size by up to 70% based on personal experience.

    hope that helped
